  • steveo9007: Cheers Atom was just a thought for now as I plan on keeping it well in range until I get comfortable with controls and flying

  • atomiclama: steveo You can just plug a GPS puck into the FC and get the OSB to display the coords, record the VTX and when things go tits up you have the last known posistion. Whislt not accurate it is a good starting point. Or get the coords sent back by telemetry to you TX which will be more accurate as long as power is maintained to the quad and it is range with the TX. Just some thoughts.

  • steveo9007: Is there a post on here about the 433mhz telem tx ??

  • steveo9007: ok thanks shaw
    December 03, 2018, 20:31:44
  • shawdreamer: meanwhile the 433mhz telem option I mentioned gives you live fixes in realtime and not "delayed texts"..... plus it doesnt cost you credit everytime you request a gps fix (btw the tags sim card also needs to have credit on it :laugh:)
    December 02, 2018, 20:47:10
  • shawdreamer: and yes that does actually work..... I tried it for a laugh a couple of years ago ::)
    December 02, 2018, 20:45:09
  • shawdreamer: the tags do as you say use satellites to get positional fixes but they dont immediately report those fixes to an App, each tag requires a Sim card (same as your phone) which is used to "text" you the tags position..... in other words you could get the exact same effect by strapping a old smartphone to your frame with the google "where is my device" app installed
    December 02, 2018, 20:44:13
  • steveo9007: doesnt the tag communicate with the satellites and not via a data system, isn't it the user who owns the tag go via data to the app that can locate the tag ???

  • shawdreamer: plus, alot of the lower end trackers struggle with GPRS and often rely heavily on GSM data instead which is just not worth a sh1te when it comes to pinpointing a downed frame
    December 02, 2018, 16:23:30
  • shawdreamer: most readily available gps trackers are not really suitable for anything smaller than a 400 sized frame as the units themselves are often too bulky for anything smaller and larger frames often already have their own gps setups that can simply be outfitted with a 433mhz telem tx that would report live and accurate info direct to a ground station so there'd be no point in a sms type tracker

  • steveo9007: anybody fitted a GPS tracker tag to their drones if it gets lost and is need to find it

AQ600 is dead, meet the S600
« on: November 07, 2018, 05:46:50 »
early days but the S600 frame arrived a few days ago, i have built the frame to make sure it all goes together correctly....it does, this is the big brother to the S500 and its huge, but really nice, carbon rods moulded into the arms
and upswept just like its little bro.
This will be getting the running gear from AQ600, 40amp esc`s sunnysky 3108 720kv motors and Naza m V1, got a Tarot gimbal for it and need some larger props as this beast can run up to 17" but going 13" on it<br /><br /><br />audi rs6 0 60<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

More than likely an SJ5000 cam, lots of work to do yet, hope to finish fitting motors and esc`s sunday morning,and get the Naza installed, need to decide what lights to fit but Banggood have some 4s flashbangs that might sit nice and neat on outer end of arms, got to order some 1355 T series props, as the 1155 that i have will look lost on this frame, this should replace my P3 phantom once its all done and fine tuned

Decided on the lights, the 4s small flashbangs arrived and are really nice, plenty bright enough, i had to order a set of 4 green so just ordered a set of 4 red, so 2x green on front arms and 2x red on rear arms........the other 2 green ones are going on my C1 chaser, what i bought them for

Not done much as i was waiting on a few parts but i did get motors fitted and installed Naza, but it was a rush job so im about to trim and tidy up the motor wires and solder the LED`s, the new props arrived i went with 1255, figured these would be about right for this new build, pictures in a bit
